View from the Learner's Perspective: ROI and the Triple Bottom Line of Learning

Participants: Miriam Taylor, Chief Learning Strategist at Inno-Versity and Lonna Jobson, Instructional Design Team Lead.

Topic: Learners make an investment when they participate in learning initiatives - an investment that is often overlooked. Tradeoffs must be made. Their schedules, priorities, and even their colleagues’ schedules are impacted. Learners set aside their normal daily work with the hope that the content they're about to consume will be relevant, and that what they receive from the learning experience will be worth their investment of time, energy, and focus.

The Triple Bottom Line of Learning acknowledges the learner as a stakeholder in the learning process, who is just as important as the C-suite and the learning team. It provides a comprehensive approach to assessing a Return on Learning by looking at the unique returns and investments of all three of the parties involved. Join Miriam Taylor, Chief Learning Strategist at Inno-Versity, and Lonna Jobson, Instructional Design Team Lead of Inno-Versity, as they continue in this series by addressing the third tier of the Triple Bottom Line of eLearning – the learners!

Discover:

  • How can I demonstrate that I value and understand my learners and their concerns?
  • How does tracking Return on Learning impact learners and the effectiveness of their learning experiences?
  • How can I broaden the understanding of all those who invest in learning (and who expect a return on that investment)?

View from the Learning Team: ROI and the Triple Bottom Line of Learning

Participants: Miriam Taylor, Chief Learning Strategist at Inno-Versity and Andrea Mikulenas, Instructional Design Team Lead.

Topic: Most learning leaders have a deep appreciation of life-long learning. They know that arming employees with the knowledge and skills to do their jobs leads to greater productivity for the company, a feeling of empowerment on the part of the employee, and a work culture where employees feel valued. Their challenge is to provide effective learning activities while keeping both the C-suite and learners engaged in the learning and development process.

This is an extremely high-stakes challenge, with the learning leader’s reputation primed to take a hit if a learning activity falls short - in either group's eyes. Therefore, the learning leader is faced with an ongoing dilemma; prioritize the needs of the learners, or succumb to the budgetary demands and deadlines of the C-suite? This proverbial tug-of-war is a constant in learning development, and it leaves learning leaders teetering in the middle, doing whatever is within their power to maintain the balance.

But the system doesn’t have to work this way. Join Miriam Taylor, Chief Learning Strategist at Inno-Versity, and Andrea Mikulenas, Instructional Design Team Lead of Inno-Versity, as they assess a return on learning by looking at the unique returns and investments involved in the second layer of the Triple Bottom Line of eLearning – the Learning Leaders!

Discover:

  • How you can convey the true value of learning to both C-Suite and learners
  • What key metrics do they consider, and how can learning teams hit those metrics?
  • How do you broaden the understanding of all those who invest in learning (and who expects a return on that investment)?

View from the Learner's Perspective: ROI and the Triple Bottom Line of Learning

Participants: Dr. Jerry Zandstra, Co-Founder of Inno-Versity and Miriam Taylor, Chief Learning Strategist at Inno-Versity.

Topic: One of the secrets of the C-suite is that they are always dealing with scarcity. This is an economic fact; and while world-class corporate offices with highly paid executives on several continents may not bring the word “scarcity” to mind, every organization, no matter its balance sheet or market cap, has limited resources. There is only so much money and time to go around.

In reality, scarcity just means that choices must be made. Money spent in one place cannot be spent in another. One hundred thousand dollars spent on learning will not be available to spend on marketing or hiring, or any one of several dozen other budget items. This means that the opportunity costs for the development of learning programs must be carefully considered.

Discover:

  • What does learning, training, and development look like from a C-suite perspective?
  • What key metrics do they consider, and how can learning teams hit those metrics?
  • How do you broaden the understanding of all those who invest in learning (and who expects a return on that investment)?

Triple Bottom Line Of Learning: How L&D Stakeholders Affect Your Learning Program's ROI

Participants: Dr. Jerry Zandstra, Co-Founder of Inno-Versity and Miriam Taylor, Chief Learning Strategist at Inno-Versity.

Topic: Measuring eLearning is difficult and the traditional methods typically fall short of painting a full picture, as not all groups impacted are considered. 

In this webinar, Inno-Versity discusses 3 groups involved in the learning process: C-Suite stakeholders, L&D teams, and the learners themselves. We'll define what the Triple Bottom Line of Learning is and how to measure learning in a way that considers all interested parties. We hope to equip you with the ability to clearly demonstrate every facet of your learning's ROI and to help each group in appreciating and respecting the others’ unique investment and expectation of reward. 

Discover:

  • The three groups that have a stake in your learning initiatives 
  • What each group invests in these initiatives and what they expect 
  • How to take this information and create a way to measuring your learning initiatives

The Triple Bottom Line of Learning

Participants: Dr. Jerry Zandstra, Co-Founder of Inno-Versity and Miriam Taylor, Chief Learning Strategist at Inno-Versity.

Topic: Traditional return on investment (ROI), while a long-standing and important concept in the business world, often falls flat when it comes to showing the full picture of a learning initiative. Simply put, the current methods of measuring eLearning ROI are mixed at best - and they tend to disregard at least one of the groups impacted by the creation and execution of a learning program.

In this webinar, Inno-Versity suggests that there are 3 distinct groups involved in the learning process: C-Suite stakeholders, L&D teams, and the learners themselves. To accurately reflect ROI for learning programs, they will define the Triple Bottom Line of Learning, where the investment and return for each of these three groups is laid out and measured. This mindset, if adopted in an organization, will not only allow you to clearly demonstrate every facet of your learning's ROI; it will also lead to each group appreciating and respecting the others’ unique investment and expectation of reward. Join Dr. Jerry Zandstra, Co-Founder of Inno-Versity, and Miriam Taylor, Chief Learning Strategist at Inno-Versity, for a compelling and informative webinar on the Triple Bottom Line of Learning!

Discover:

  • The three groups in your company with a stake in eLearning
  • The unique investment made by each of those three groups and the unique return expected
  • How to combine C-Suite, L&D and Learner outcomes into a comprehensive bottom line
